This lighthouse was replaced by the Toledo Harbor Light in 1904, and it passed into private ownership. It has long been abandoned and neglected except for a couple of brief restoraton efforts. A 1965 tornado destroyed its lantern, and all that remains today is the shell of the lighthouse tower. The present owners hope to rebuild the lighthouse.
